Had a great experience at Gilda by Belgious! Food was delicious and service was friendly. We especially loved the shrimp with ice cream tapa! It's a must try! There were a group of Americans sitting by us who annually visit Barcelona for an expo and they said this is the one spot they go to on every visit. Also, the owner came by and visited with us which added to our overall experience.

Chose this place from trip advisor . The service and the place was lovely, the owner is a slightly mad Belgium chap, mad in a good way, very helpful and a good host. The food was nice but on staff recommendation my wife had the duck, which to put it mildly was tiny, a chap on the next table was just as gobsmacked at the size of the meal that he ordered additional chips to pad it out. My steak was one the small side, but came with chips and a salad. Both meat dishes were pre-cut, I think that this is a good way for the restaurant to provide a smaller piece of meat but it looks bigger as it is ‘fanned’ out on the plate.

Overall a nice place to eat and tasty, but small portions.

Great tapas restaurant on the Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter).

We entered to this place by chance and we were surprised! This fusion food tapas-Belgian restaurant is very good!

Tapas and dishes are amazing and the service is very attentive.

I recommend the crispy prawns with curry ice cream and the Norwegian salmon!

It's a funky space in the oldest part of Barcelona down near the Aquarium. Great for sharing and good cocktails. We had ham croquettes and veal meatballs along with the caprese salad. Potates Braves very good as well. Thai mussels were very gragrant and tender. Sharing is key and there is plenty for the safe and the adventurous. We went early (by Barcelona standards) so probably louder and busier after 9. We would return if we return to Barcelona.

Overall great experience, food was excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. On the particular night we were there a large hen party were also dining. Due to the compact style of the restaurant the noise level generated by this large party was high which detracted slightly from the overall ambiance. Once the party left however noise levels reduced to norm and conversations could commence.

I invited one of my bf to Gilda because of her birthday. As she's Belgian, I wanted to take her to a Belgian place, and Gilda was definitely a great choice!

It's not just a "Belgian" restaurant, but a Spanish-Belgian fusion place. Here you can find many different kinds of original and innovative tapas, Belgian beers and great vibes.

We really enjoyed it and will come back for sure!

We found this place walking on Gothic Quarter. We weren't very sure about what to order, but the owner were there and he helped us to pick the best tapas 😊. We had patatas bravas, iberic ham and a innovative tapa of prawns with curry ice cream that was amazing.

To drink we had many Belgian beers and two black mojitos at the end.

It was a very nice experience.

A friend told us (my bf and I) about Gilda, so we decided to visit them on our holidays in Barcelona. Food and service were amazing. I loved their patatas bravas and their croquettes (the owner told us that they import them from Belgium). We had many tapas and beers, so we shared a main dish that Nico proposed us: duck magret. It was incredible and perfectly cooked.

Very good experience. Gilda is a tiny but cozy restaurant in center town. Service is kind and fast and food is incredible. We had two Belgian Steaks (me with blue cheese sauce and my girl with pepper sauce) and they were incredible. We wanted to taste their desserts but we were full, but we will next time for sure ;)

Great food. However dishes not available not communicated until eating had begun. Wine not delivered. Offers of an apology and free drinks (not requested) quickly forgotten about also. Reiterate that food was excellent as was the menu. Service weak/poor

Nice spot in Barcelona with reasonable prices and very good food. We had some tapas (all of them amazing) instead of main dishes. It's a Belgian place, so they had Belgian Beers...Duvel, Hoegarden, etc...we had many of them and they're amazing. I would deff come back to Gilda!
